Hi! I am a third year pediatric resident. I did not apply for fellowship match this year but now I am having serious thoughts about it. I was unsure about fellowship so I decided that I would do general pediatrics for now and consider any specialty later if I am not satisfied with my practice. However, I am an IMG and on visa and I am not liking the job options. I was really hoping to find a job in the state (or nearby) where my family lives but no luck with it. So now I am thinking about fellowship scramble. I know there are unmatched spots every year but I am just not sure how the scramble works. My impression is that NRMP releases the unfilled programs and candidates so they can contact each other. Is there a way that I can have access to that list if I have not applied. Do I need to make an ERAS account (not sure if it is even possible to do now) to upload my documents or I can email directly? Also, in terms of my LOR which I will have to ask my attending now, what do I tell them what specialty I am applying for as it will depend on what is available at that time. If anyone has any experience with this process, I would really appreciate any help. Thanks!
